Could be WAY better

The overall experience on the Norwegian Bliss was just alright. One of the things you need to be prepared for is the constant service fees, 20% gratuity charges (which is already paid for ahead of time, so you ...

Cruise to nowhere

Our previous 2 cruises on NCL were definitely 5 star. This cruise was unfortunately a 2 star for us. Sailing out of New York was nice. Easy for us to get to from Philly. Sailing past the NYC skyline and the Statue ...

Bad cabin mini-suite

The Bliss was a great cruise except for rooms. The noise from cleaning the kitchen for the Ocean Restaurant woke us up from 2-4am every night. Avoid rooms 9830-32 at all costs. The staff were excellent. The food ...
